South Korea prosecutors to question ousted president in corruption scandal

Park became her country's first democratically-elected leader to be ousted from power after becoming a suspect in a mass corruption scandal.

The merger was extremely crucial to Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, Samsung's heir apparent, to inherit the management control from his ailing father Lee Kun-hee who has been hospitalized for almost three years. This time, the unceremonious departure has left an indelible stain on her life's work.

The dogs are Jindos, a Korean breed of hunting dog known for their loyalty.

But, if found guilty, she could be fined up to 1m won (£716) for abandoning them, and up to half as much again if she does not report a change in ownership within 30 days. The nickname "princess" seemed especially appropriate then.

The Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals published the accusation on Twitter. She would then fade into obscurity. Issuing its verdict, the Constitutional Court noted that Park lied and concealed facts.

Animal abandonment is punishable by a fine of up to 1 million won (£718) in South Korea. Park told staff to take care of the dogs before leaving the Blue House on Sunday, he said.

A presidential palace spokesman denied Park had neglected to take her dogs, telling Reuters that a reason for the dogs staying at the residence since her departure was so they not part with their home. "It can happen to me, to my kids", he said.

"After much consideration, I reached a conclusion that I cannot put off or neglect the management of the current national crises and of state affairs". No, this is not about the failed presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and the Clinton Foundation.

Prosecutors accuse Park of colluding with confidante Choi Soon-sil to extort money from businesses and allowed her pull government strings from the shadows.

Her removal will help bring about an end to the political vacuum that South Korea has been in for the past three months, as preparations are now underway to replace her. Hundreds of thousands more across the country participated in candlelight demonstrations. "Seven school officials, including its former president and several professors, were indicted on criminal charges, and Chung's admission to the university was cancelled", the Washington Post said. Park's own rather isolated style of ruling included a reportedly rigid stubbornness.
